Anthony Bourdain clearly knows the way to a woman’s heart is through her stomach.
Bourdain reportedly charmed Italian actress Asia Argento while she shot an episode of Bourdain’s show Parts Unknown in Rome. Page Six confirms these two are officially an item after they were spotted holding hands and kissing at a local market by an Italian magazine.
In a CNN blog article written by Bourdain following the wrap of his Rome episode, he called Argento “truly magnificent” and praised her for her involvement in the production.
“[Asia] was herself. Always honest, completely unsparing,” Bourdain wrote.
He added, “Asia has a reputation for saying what she feels, regardless of what people might think.”
Bourdain split from his MMA fighter wife Ottavia Busia last September, though the separation was super-amicable. Busia even explained to Page Six, “Because of professional decisions we both have made, my husband and I have been for years in an unconventional relationship. Nothing has changed. We love each other. We respect the decisions the other has made. And we’ll always consider ourselves a family.”
Given that Bourdain has said in the past that he’s on the road for 250 days out of the year, it must be hard to maintain any type of relationship. But with Argento’s established acting career, it could be that these two will be a match made in Hollywood heaven. She is best known for co-starring in Vin Diesel’s 2002 film XXX.
Though Bourdain and Argento have yet to officially confirm their relationship publicly yet, they have been interacting on social media. Bourdain retweeted an Italian article about Argento’s latest project…
